What is the general issue?  Why this is important now?

Subrogation recovery potential is directly linked to the Investigation that occurs within the first couple of weeks after the loss.  However, navigating the Investigation phase to maximize recovery potential is treacherous and full of pitfalls.  If the Investigation is done poorly, subrgation dollars will be lost.                         

Who will be most interested in this program?

Large loss property adjuster, subrogation representatives and any manager responsible for subrogation recoveries.
